Summary: The LG GS170 is a normal clamshell phone with a camera and basic features. It is designed as a low priced way of having a quick communication over the cell waves. You do not have to settle for boring black with this LG phone. It comes in a stunning dark pink color that will be sure to impress your friends and perhaps your enemies. The size of this model makes it easy to carry around in your pocket.
Conclusion: When a device is crafted to dabble in the entry-level segment, you'd expect features to be slim with an emphasis on good calling quality. Regrettably, the LG GS170 fails in many aspects to deem itself as a worthy option for even the most casual of basic handset users. It's like one of those gifts you receive on your birthday that you know is bad upon opening it, but you're torn whether or not to accept it due to the fact you know that it's terrible.
Pros: Inexpensive cost, Great battery life
Cons: Cheap feeling, Muddy images with its camera, Web browser's good for nothing, Terrible calling quality
